The breakthrough came midway through the first half after some neat build up play left Alfie Deglan in a shooting position. The on-fire scoring machine let loose with a devastating shot which eluded the diving effort of the keeper and sailed into the mid left side of the net to give the Classics a deserved lead. Langley responded with a harmless free kick which was easily taken by stand in keeper Dave Moore but ten minutes later they were level. Some indecision in the Classics defence left a Langley forward with the ball and his back to the goal on the 18 yard box. Moore came out of his goal, rightly or wrongly, to try to get to the ball but the forward swivelled and hit a slow, low shot which weaved its way through the remainder of the Classics defence like a snake slithering through the grass, and trickled over the line to give the Aces an equaliser.
The second half was again one way traffic with the posts and crossbar again coming to the visitors rescue on several occasions but the Aces' keeper again made some excellent saves which made him the man of the match by a long chalk. Chuck McGill almost got the winner with minutes to go but once again the crossbar got in the way of a spectacular headed winner. The Aces were delighted with their point as they were treating the game like a cup final and questioned the referee about remaining time many times as play was running to a close. Next week the Classics head off east to visit the home of Aldergrove for another encounter in a league which is significantly better and of a higher quality than of late.
Final Score: 1-1 (1-1)
